#AskEden - Referencing Another Review In Your Own

This will sound weird, but go with me for a moment. I have a lingerie product that I am preparing to review. One of the main reasons I purchased it was in the only review for the product here they were so descriptive, especially with sizing, which EF didn't have, nor the own company's site, or at least as detailed as this review.

Would it be wrong to give credit to this review and say, "For sizing questions please check out this review, it is really well done," and then link to that review? Thanks.

Absolutely not, especially if it's someone you communicate with frequently. If in doubt, you could always message them to ask; reviews are resources for everyone and I'm sure they would appreciate the shout-out.

That sounds like it would be really nice of you!

I think it's appropriate. I've had a friend ask me about doing that on my Mimi comparison review and I told them I didn't care at all.

I've done it once. I didn't mention it to the reviewer, but I did mention him by name and I linked his profile as well as the review I referred to.

I have done this with a couple of items and have asked the reviewer ahead of time. Also, a couple reviewers have helped out by offering to let me reference them in my reviews for a couple of facts I was having issues finding on my own. Thanks guys--you know who you are!!

I've often referred to my own reviews or friends, particularly if something didn't really float my boat. Different people like different things, so I often say hey, Bobette likes xyz and I don't so if you like xyz, you should check out her review of this.

I would be flattered if someone linked to me, so I think it is a-okay. I know I read reviews all the time, and think, "I could not say that part better myself" .. so why not just give them credit and link!

I do this if someone wants information on a different size, different scent, or anything along those lines. I give credit to the author and give the link to the review.

It's flattering to be mentioned and I don't think anyone would mind.

That is pretty flattering.

I did it once when I could find NOTHING on the specific material a toy was made of but another reviewer dug something up about it. I just quoted what they said and cited their review, but I certainly messaged the user first. I've had people ask about citing me a few times and I always say yes!

I've done this before. Usually in the instance that a review prompted me to make the purchase.

Thanks for all of the feedback, I really appreciate it. I just wanted to make sure it was kosher before going forward and I've reached out to the author of the review. Thanks!
